What is mortgage life insurance?

Mortgage life insurance is a form of insurance specifically designed to protect a mortgage, decreasing in line with your mortgage throughout the policy term. If you were to die while the mortgage life insurance was in force, the policy would pay out a lump sum that will be sufficient to repay the outstanding mortgage.


Why do I need mortgage life insurance?

If you share your home with other family members, such as a partner or children, mortgage life insurance would pay out a lump sum on your passing in order to pay off your mortgage and protect your loved ones future.


How does mortgage life insurance work?

The policy is either taken out on a ‘decreasing’ or ‘level’ basis.  A decreasing policy can be taken out to cover a repayment mortgage and this type of policy decreases in line with your mortgage balance. A level policy would be taken out to cover an interest only mortgage (meaning you only pay the interest and the balance doesn’t decrease).
